Jim's musical abilities, ideas and professional production skills have taken my songs to a level that i never thought possible, and have opened up a whole new world of inspiration for me. It's amazing that we can now record music at home - but taking my tracks into the studio and working with Jim has given me a great insight into production technics, writing and how to record properly! which has been invaluable.
